This article looks at comments made from the July 13th – July 19th (Japan time).
The mega debate still going on in Settle it in Smash: Should Sakurai Return as the Series Director?. There’s been good points made on both sides, so check it out!
Remember, don’t insult other posters. If you insult other posters, your post that you might have spent so much time on might not get approved, and thrown in the trash. Stay classy!
It tells me in the administration panel. Honestly, I dislike how WordPress handles comments — it’s pretty limited. I wish I could keep track of more stats for you guys. I used to keep track of the biggest commentators, but that was something I did manually.
I love the commercial! Thanks for sharing. A loose translation of what the girl is saying is ‘I can speak frog, let me translate for you’ (frogs croak) ‘I don’t understand’. Presenting it as a gag-adventure is pretty accurate too! I believe the hat from the commercial was available in Tomodachi Collection at one point!
With everything they currently say (the fact that they want their products to lead people to their hardware), I think it’s safe to say Nintendo will continue developing games in the future.
Only played a little bit, but there are some differences! Maybe I should do a video on it? James Montagna, Spazzy and I are thinking of doing a Pac-Man discussion in the future! James would definitely be the expert on that topic!
Honestly, you are probably on the wrong website. I hate to say it :X. The reason I’m featuring this isn’t so I can say my comeback, but because I wanted to ask you guys…should we post shorter features? One thing we worry is the accessibility of the site. We have long debates about the length of the articles, and if we should keep doing daily posts. What do you think?
I think this is a fair point, and I agree with it personally. Knuckles and Tails were fine because in the end they didn’t change those Sonic games THAT much.
FWIW: I know Burb for almost two years. He was in the leaks group where I essentially started Source Gaming. He doesn’t blindly defend Sakurai….he just argues for what he believes is true. Burb tries really hard to be logical in his thinking. Not saying you are wrong in your opinion (it’s an opinion after all, opinions are subjective), but Burb is one of the least bias people I’ve met in the Smash community.
Spyro is a character I wouldn’t mind in Smash…I just think his chances are really low. Spyro wasn’t a revolutionary game, and the character has been essentially replaced by other figures in his series (literally :().
Couple of posts from the Favorite Sonic Game thread. Thanks for sharing guys 🙂
I think DLC is the perfect time to add 3rd party characters. It makes figuring out licensing, dividing profits and oversight much easier. Really for 3rd party characters as long as they are iconic, I see no reason why they shouldn’t be limited in theory. I think in practice it’ll end up being one character per series as you don’t usually have two huge characters from the same game. Lightning from Final Fantasy is the only character I could think of that could be added on top of Cloud. Sakurai has considered other characters from the series in the past though.
Nothing that Sakurai has ever said indicates its one per company, or one per franchise. I think in practice it just ends up being that because Sakurai tries to select REALLY popular characters. In this article, I explored the selection criteria for 3rd parties.
As long as Sakurai picks interesting and popular characters I don’t mind. Because of licensing costs,etc I don’t think it will happen but I still think the future of Smash is in largely third parties.
